Art: The Hen and the Golden Eggs by Artist Elisa Vegliante
The Hen and the Golden Eggs
This is the part where the hen is gutted.
A COTTAGER and his wife had a Hen that laid a golden egg every day. They supposed that the Hen must contain a great lump of gold in its inside, and in order to get the gold they killed it. Having done so, they found to their surprise that the Hen differed in no respect from their other hens. The foolish pair, thus hoping to become rich all at once, deprived themselves of the gain of which they were assured day by day.
